“Bringing Maggie Home” by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Decades of Loss, an Unsolved Mystery,

and a Rift Spanning Three Generations

Bringing Maggie Home is my favorite Sawyer book yet!  I absolutely love the way that Sawyer blends the stories of all three generations of DeFord women.  

I thoroughly enjoyed Meghan.  She adds a bit of Nancy Drew to the cast of characters and ups the mystery factor.  As a diehard lover of all things mysterious, this aspect of the story was right up my alley.

Hazel reminded me of my own grandmother.  Hazel is spunky and adventurous and proper only on the surface.  While she’s definitely more prim than Nana, she stared down adventure when the time came, and I want to be her someday.

Sawyer wrote Bringing Maggie Home as a story within a story.  This type of writing can be complicated and confusing if not done well, but Sawyer nails it.  It’s easy to keep each time frame straight.  My biggest problem was that I was always so caught up in each saga that I was never ready to leave any given time frame when they changed.  My desire to learn what happened next kept the pages turning until the very last one.

If you’re a fan of Sawyer’s books, general mystery novels, or just want a good read, pick up Bringing Maggie Home.

I received a free copy of Bringing Maggie Home from LitFuse Publicity.  All opinions are my own.
